Tutorial Using My Mac Quad

Before applying the eyeshadows I apply Urban Decay Primer potion and then go over with the amazing Shiseido cream e/s

Bare Minerals Starter Kit in Light

I finally get to write about the renown Bare Mineral starter kit. I made two videos regarding the mineral foundation...the first one is by using the foundation as the directions said (video) I found it to be great and very light on my skin. The coverage of course is not full however it is very buildable.  When I apply the foundation on it's own I tend to mix the two colors given in the kit. Unfortunately Light is too dark and Fairly Light is too pink but when I mix them it gives a great color. My favorite mineral form the kit is not so much the mineral veil but the Warmth. I have finally found a bronzer/all over glow product that is perfect for my fair skin!
This is the box in which the kit comes in...My two favorite colors, pink and black! I'm in love ;.) As you can see I added some things to the kit.

These are the wonderful brushes the Kit comes with. I had read many bad things about thee brushes but to tell you the truth I think they are great! I particularly like the shorter one for the Warmth bronzer. The big Flawless face brush is good at applying the foundation if you want a light coverage. The bristles are goat hair and they are quite soft.

These two oldies but goodies are the brushes I perfectionize my look with. The Mac 109 is perfect to build up colors and carefully buff in the product. I also use the Mac 224 for applying the color fairly light together and then the mineral veil under my eyes 
This vibrant blush color is what I use when I want to have a flush color on my check. I can't tell you enough how much I adore these Sleek brushes they are worth so much more than what you pay for them.

Finally this is a pic of everthing put together in order to achieve that perfect Bare minerals natural look. I am not too crazy about the Maybeline mascara ladies.

Final and most liked step is an all over spritz of the Caudelie mist ( or any mist you have) in order to amalgamate everything together! (Mac Patisserie Lipstick)
 This Picture was taken with Bare Minerals together with Mac Face and Body in White as a base! and voilà , just the finish I was looking for. I will make a blog post about this techinique but first you can watch the video here

My Favourite Lip Combo of the Moment

This is by far one of my favourite lip combo. It all started with the new addition; YSL lip gloss in 19, I got that for my Bday back in October. Ysl lip glosses are some of the classiest colors and divine consistancy I have ever seen and felt. When I the gloss I combined it with one of my fav nude Ysl lippies; Sensusal Silk. The only problem with the Rouge Velupté lippies is that they way too creamy and smooth! I know it kind of is a contradiction as they should be loved and indeed they are however they are so silky that they slip right off my lips after 5 minutes! In order for them to stay I have to apply a lip liner and at the moment one of my favourite lip liners are the Pupa ones especially the number 3.
As you can see from the above picture the color combo in spectacular however I should have worked in the lipstick better before applying the gloss. Of course the fact that is camera picks up every little single tiniest detail doesn't really help. Gosh!
I simply adore the YSl packaging! It's so feminine.
